The review embargo on Steven Spielberg‘s The Post lifts on Monday, 11.27. I can’t describe or even summarize the discussions among critics so far, but the conversation next week will be lively, I can tell you. There’s a big screening happening that evening at the DGA, complete with Spielberg and his illustrious cast attending a post-viewing discussion
Paul Schrader engineered a stunning comeback with First Reformed, which tallied a Rotten Tomato score of 95%. It delivered the kind of lean, flinty, straight-faced realism that hadn’t been seen from Schrader since….what, Light Sleeper? Or should I say Hardcore (’90)? This photo of Schrader, Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig was taken at Minetta Tavern and posted on Facebook.
